PIMA COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima Animal Care Center has been hosting several animal shelters from across the U.S. at the Maddie’s Medium and Large Adult Dog Foster Apprenticeship program. 

The event began on Monday, April 9 and will wrap up on Thursday, April 12 and is taking place at PACC’s shelter, 4000 N. Silverbell Road. 

Participating municipal shelters are here from Phoenix, Chicago, El Paso, Indianapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, Houston and Cincinnati, among others. 

PACC is hosting this apprenticeship as part of a Maddie’s Fund grant received by the Friends of PACC.

Attendees learn how to build and run a comprehensive foster program that includes options for adult dogs. Lessons include creating a foster-centric culture in the community, building a foster program, recruiting and retaining foster families, marketing for foster pets and more.
